UTME Mock Examinations: Parents Decry Lapses
The 2020 UTME mock examination conducted by the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board, JAMB, commenced in most of the accredited CBT centres in Ibadan.
Radio Nigeria correspondent who monitored the exercise at the University of Ibadan Distance Learning CBT Centre, Yinmbol College, Orogun, JAMB office, and other Centres reported that the exercise which lasted for 40minutes was conducted in batches.
In an interview, some parent said the sum of Seven Hundred Naira being collected from candidates caught them unaware while the change in the examination time table was not communicated to them early.
Reacting to the allegations, one of the examination coordinator at the University of Ibadan Distance Learning CBT Centre, Dr Kunle Odedokun said the late notice might have been due to an oversight from the Board.
Mr Odedokun who said the examination was hitch-free, said the mock examination was meant to familiarize the candidates with computer operations.
Some candidates, who spoke to Radio Nigeria said they were well prepared for the examination, but appealed to Jamb to ensure adequate security for them.
